RGA aims to be your organization’s partner of choice and longevity expert. Through our significant global mortality business, we have access to insights and risk diversification that translate into benefits for our clients. We are a market leader in addressing longevity and pension risk transfer needs, from transacting with traditional insurance companies, banks, and pension plans to reinsuring both standard and medically underwritten business globally. RGA executed its first longevity reinsurance transaction in 2008 in the United Kingdom. Since then, RGA’s Global Financial Solutions team has expanded its longevity risk transfer solutions set for clients in the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, France, Ireland, and Spain.
In Canada, RGA executed the first in-force longevity transaction in 2010 and the first longevity transaction, including an underlying pension plan in 2015. Drawing on the extensive knowledge gained from other markets, RGA supported the U.S. Pension Risk Transfer market by executing the first longevity transaction in the U.S. in 2018. We are a pioneer in creating innovative and highly tailored solutions to support longevity, asset-intensive longevity (see: Asset-Intensive Solutions), and tail-risk transactions (see: Capital Solutions).
